Who Is Fran Kirby’s Partner?

English professional footballer, Fran Kirby, is single at the moment. She is not in a relationship with anybody and her last public relationship ended two years ago, in 2020.

Fran Kirby is a football player for Chelsea FC in London and the England national team. The number fourteen jersey is worn by the forward who plays the attacking midfield position. Kirby made her college debut at the age of 16. Throughout her stellar career, she has twice competed in the FIFA Women’s World Cup and was also named the PFA Women’s Player of the Year in 2018. Here is a brief rundown of the star athlete’s romantic life.

Fran Kirby Appears to Have Been Single For A Few Years

The star footballer doesn’t seem to have any interest in romantic relationships at the moment. She is active on Instagram as @frankirby, and her page’s gallery contains almost 1k images and videos. Her Instagram account currently has over 300,000 followers. Among Fran’s many fans are many admirers of her football abilities.

Fran also has other types of fans who are obsessed with the state of her love life. The player tries to curtail this privacy invasion by not posting much about her private life online.

Another distant, but yet valid reason for Fran’s apparent singleness is that she is dating but choosing not to say anything about it. When a celebrity masters the art of separating their private life from their professional life, they tend to get away with many things.

Probably, Fran is keeping her love life under the radar to prevent undue public interest from ruining her relationship. Either way, the consensus is that she is considered single.

Fran Kirby is Openly Gay

The highly skilled football player, Fran Kirby, is a proud lesbian. Because of the discrimination members of the LGBTQIA are often faced with, coming out as a gay person is a very big deal in Europe, especially when the person involved has a career that is in the spotlight. Surprisingly, Fran isn’t one to care about what others think about her sexuality.

She not only speaks about her lesbian sexuality, but she openly talks about her dates/girlfriends and isn’t afraid to be open about her sexual preference in public.

Fran Kirby is very proud of her identity as a prominent figure in the LGBTQ community. She is a great inspiration to many young girls who aspire to be like her. For Fran, there is absolutely no shame in being yourself, no matter what society thinks.

Are Fran Kirby and Maren Mjelde in a Relationship?

Fran Kirby was once rumored to be dating Maren Mjelde, a Chelsea FC teammate. Although she is presently not in a relationship and keeps her dating life private, the rumors did turn out to be true. Maren and Fran did have a romantic relationship.

The Norwegian-English couple used to be together, but they are no longer. Maren is a Norwegian professional footballer who captains the Norwegian national team as well as plays for Chelsea as a defender or midfielder.

She played professionally in major football leagues like Germany’s Frauen-Bundesliga, where she played with Turbine Potsdam. Maren also played in Arna-Bjornar and Avaldsnes IL in Norway’s Toppserien as well as Kopparbergs/Göteborg FC in Sweden’s Damallsvenskan.

The two footballers dated between 2018 and 2020 but eventually called things off for unknown reasons. Both are presently single too so it seems like they wanted to focus more on their careers. The former couple is still on good terms and still follows each other on social media.

Before Maren, Fran Dated One or Two Other People in the Past

Fran previously dated a female football player and publicly announced the relationship, further demonstrating her openness about her sexuality. The professional footballer represented her country at the 2017 UEFA Women’s Euro in the Netherlands, the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup in France, and the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Canada.

In between her busy career, she struggles to find the time to maintain long relationships. There is presently no more information on Fran Kirby’s past love life apart from this.
